Later on today at the RDS, Leinster will bid their official farewell to Brian O'Driscoll and Leo Cullen

Naturally they don't want to pre-empt anything, but you can rest assured, that behind closed doors, the 'real' farewell is planned for Saturday, May 31 when the final of the Pro 12 takes place. Winning the Pro12 trophy is the only goodbye they or anyone involved in Leinster rugby wants, most of all the departing duo.
